Blyde River Canyon

The Blyde River Canyon Reserve extends along the Blyde River Canyon's winding path, offering impressive views over sheer edges dropping 800m into the riverbed below. The mountain scenery and panoramic views over the Klein Drakensberg escarpment are spectacular and were given the name of 'Panorama Route'. Viewpoints are named for the spectacle. God's Window and Wonder View hint at the magnitude of the scenery.

The 'Pinnacle' is a single quartzite column rising out of the deep wooded canyon, and the ‘Three Rondavels' also called 'Three Sisters’ are huge spirals of dolomite rock rising out of the far wall of the Blyde River canyon. Their domed heads iced in green and sides stained with fiery orange lichen. From the 'Three Rondavels' you can see the great Swadini Dam in the far distance, which marks the end of the reserve.
